Web design & rich media development lead.
Helped launch the brand new personalised hotel & restaurant recommendations service.
"I worked with James over a few months on Gekko.com – an exciting, large scale internet start-up that recommends relevant spots based on user taste and behavior.

James also storyboarded, designed and coded Flash components that provided core functionalities within our site; making a boring, but elementary piece of functionality into a great user experience.
Moreover, James is fast, accurate, flexible and a great guy to work with!"

"We chose James as we really liked the way his previous work combined strong visual impact with clarity and simplicity. He impressed us from the first meeting, quickly getting to grips with our business and our brand. During the creative process he brought lots of ideas to the table, helped shape our thinking and when he thought we were going off down the wrong track, he would be absolutely straight with us - something we really valued. It was easy to work with James: nothing was impossible, he was always responsive, and delivered what he said, when he said. In the end, we were so impressed with him and the results, we asked him to re-design our UK and US sites."
